Impression Obsession “Fall Florals” Challenge

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession design team “Fall Florals” challenge.  My project today was made using the Twig Wreath and flowers from the Spring Wreath.  For the greenery I used the new Foliage set and I created the twiggy pieces of the wreath by cutting apart the new Tree Row.  Adding the twigs to the wreath seems to give it a more natural appearance and it’s always fun to think of different ways to use my dies than the obvious.

I cut the wreath and tree row using kraft cardstock and lightly applied vintage photo ink to add depth.  I cut the flowers using watercolor paper and the foliage was cut using olive green. I misted the flowers and then applied spiced marmalade ink with a mini applicator to cover and then added vintage photo to the centers with a mini applicator.  I could have used orange cardstock to make the flowers but the watercolor paper and ink made  much more vibrant flowers.  I formed the flowers using my stylus and molding pad.

I arranged the foliage on the wreath and attached with glossy accents.  Next I attached the flowers to the foliage with glossy accents and then tucked the pieces of twigs all around the arrangement.  I was going to add an orange bow to the center but filled it with flowers instead.

I crimped the background layer of vanilla cardstock and attached it to the orange cardstock with ATG adhesive.  I attached the crimped section to the card base with mounting tape and then attached the wreath with glossy accents. I used vanilla cardstock to allow the bright orange flowers be the main focal point of the card.

  1. Oh, Kittie, what a beautiful card. Love the use of dies and the colors you selected. Very, very nice card.
    Like the new header on your site…

  2. Good Morning, Kittie. a fantastic wreath. I love the texture an fall colors. These flowers and their color would make a beautiful larger wreath for the door, mantel, of even a table decoration. the wreath of twiggy pieces adds to the holiday cheer.
    If on the mantel, I would add your card in the display to match. Can you tell I love it….thanks so much…..have a good day.

  3. Kittie, This is such a beautiful card…. I call feel the crisp fall air when I look at the card… I love the colors and that wreath. Another idea for me to try. You are so very creative… Thank you for sharing your creativity….

  4. Hi Kittie, due to circumstances I was not able to write a comment for a while, but I have seen all the wonderful cards you have made the last time.
    This one is GORGEOUS, a pretty wreath with lovely flowers and wonderful colors.
    But….The Shadow Box you have made a week ago……is really BREATHTAKING!!
    That is the one to watch continue, that is the one they only YOU can make!!
    Kittie, Thank you very much for such a WONDERFUL INSPIRATION.
    Gretings and Hugs, Eva.

  5. Wow! I wouldn’t have thought the flowers would be so perfect in this autumn card. And the sprigs of twigs intertwined with the leaves makes it all so real and so lovely. Thanks again for inspiring me Kittie!
